New Release – The White Archer

The Houston North Gallery is pleased to present The White Archer, John Houston’s most recent film inspired by a children’s book written by his late father, James Houston.

An Inuit youth trains to become a great archer in hopes of avenging the killing of his family – but the First Nations attackers were punishing a previous Inuit wrongdoing. Who will end the cycle of violence? The White Archer is an Inuit legend inspired the late James Houston’s beloved children’s book. In Canada’s High Arctic hamlet of Pond Inlet, his son John weaves outdoor adventure and local theatre into a story for all ages.

The film, The White Archer, has won both Canadian and International awards. It continues to be broadcast on the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network (APTN). The White Archer is now available for purchase on DVD through the gallery.
